Earlier this year, multi-Platinum Pop Rock band Matchbox Twenty announced an extensive 2020 summer tour that included a Cincinnati stop.

Last year, singer Rob Thomas played Riverbend Music Center's PNC Pavilion. And this year, Thomas and his old Matchbox Twenty bandmates were slated to play the big shed at Riverbend on Aug. 27 with openers The Wallflowers. 

That show was postponed due to COVID-19 and pushed to Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2021. And until today, it hadn't been officially clear whether or not The Wallflowers were going to make the rescheduled dates.

But it's clear now: They are.


This will be Matchbox Twenty's first tour since they reunited in 2017 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut LP, Yourself or Someone Like You.

“I’m proud to be a part of the greatest pop rock band in the world and I can’t wait to play with them again," Rob Thomas said in a press release. "Stepping on stage with Matchbox and sharing those songs with the fans feels as natural as breathing to me at this point.”

Tickets for the original 2020 show will be honored for the 2021 date. You can get more info about the show (and refunds) at riverbend.org.
